I don't normally do a list of my least favorite books of the year. Everyone on BookTube was doing it, though, and it looked really fun. I disliked quite a few books this year, so narrowing this list down to ten was a REAL CHALLENGE. I managed, though. I had a minor change of heart… Continue reading Top Ten Least Favorite Books of 2020

I also abandoned some of my most-anticipated reads for newer, less familiar books. Oh, and I forgot to buy The Handmaid's Tale, despite walking past… Continue reading Powell’s Haul: What did I just buy?
